• Incident *
A HOLIDAY celebration? that will I (
long be remembered in tbe |
American navy is tbe "Santa ,
■jl Clans dinner" given In tbe |
wardroom of one at L'aele Sam'a (
gunboats of the Venesoelan coast,
Tbe plan had been to have tbe affair j
oa Cbrlstuaa night but aa the veaeel (
waa then at aea tbo event was poet-
poned until New Year's. It waa ou
IW occasion that an Italian battle
ship commander, with warlike inten
tions toward the United Stataa and
all tbelr inhabitants, was beguiled Into
peaceful thought* by good American
punch, which the American offices ,
dealt out to blm In suck quantities that
he finally aald be would like to settle
In tbe western hemisphere.
It bappeued that tbe Itailan'a man
of-war and tbe Yankee gunboat arriv
ed .In southern waters at about tbe
same time. There waa tbe usual inter
change of courtealea. Then occurred
tbe Incldeut that aroused tbe Italian
captain's "Ire. A South American newa
paper printed a cartoon representing
blm aa being blown out of the water
by the United States gunboat In this,
of course, there* waa no sense what
ever. as Italy and this country were
on the friendliest terms, but the for
eign skipper, being both excitable and
suspicious, took tbe matter to heart
The America us heard that he even ac
cused them of Insplrlug the cartoon
and that be bad complained to hlf
New Year's day came due while the
gossip was at Its height. For weeks
tbe wardroom officers of tbe gunboat
bad been making preparations for a
grand feast. They decided at tbe laal
minute to invite tbo Italian and hla
staff as guests of honor
A refusal, of course, was out of tbs
question, but wbeu tbe guests arrived
their attitude was cold aud dlstaut, es
pecially that of tbe captain, who look
ed as though he expected to be thrown
Into Irons. It was said afterward that
be had ordered his vessel to be ready
for Immediate action In case of treach
ery. At any rate, be sat down at din
ner without a amlle for bis boats, an#
for awhile tblugs looked gloomy.
Gradually, however, the younger oflV
cers of the gunboat succeeded in fare-
TmntKma nti/rns to twe ium AMI
lag the visiters to partake of tbe punch,
and with each glass the suspicious cap
tain grew tees suspicious. In an hour
be waa affable. In another hour he
was affectionate. By tbe time the reel
celebration began, while tbe coffee waa
being aerved, be had forgotten tbe car
toon and was drinking healths to the
etars and atrlpee every thirty seconds.
When the- cefomonies, which bad been
carefully arranged, bad been In prog
rees a few minutes be was proposing a
Joint expedition by hla and tbe gun
boat'a crews agaluat tbe Veneauelan
Kven if the Incident of tbe Italian's
conversion had been lacking tbe dinner
would have been an affair to be remem
bered. Tbe first part of the closing cel
ebration waa tbe appearance of a
Christmas tree, which of course shonid
_ have been called a New Year's tree. It
waa a big tree, too, ons that anybody
might have envied, and tbe tare bad
made a trip ten miles Inland to get It
en tbe previous day. As It waa-borne
Into tbe wardroom it reached op inte
the dome-like window et the top. For
this window, forming a sort of towet
apace to the wardroom, naval men
bave a technical name, but no landlut*
bar could hope to get It right eo let It
be called simply a window. Tbe tree
went all tbe way up, and from every
branch there hung gift* for the merry

' LOST RIVERS.
Krwiiw That Myotorieuely
Into the Earth.
Ia the great basin between the Rock-
Iw an«l the Sierra Nevada* lie tha
ghoata of many dead lakes. Rlters atlll
Sow down to tbe dry edges of theee
one time great reservoirs and Hi
ticked up bjr evaporation and tbe Chi
nook winds. Of all the lakes that once
lay there only Salt lake, Lake Tahoe
and Bear lake are Uft.
FaetSe rolls for 1(13 miles eeroes tbe
bed of what waa once Lake 1-ahoutan,
and passengers gazing Idly from tha
windows may see the terraces and
wrinkles in the crust of the fowl lake
which nature destroyed ages ago.
Aktu to these ghost lakea, aays tha
New York Suu, are tbe lost rtvera of
the southwest, rivers that flow with
all tbe swiftness and clearness of other
streams near by, then disappear. Into
the rtrth as mysteriously as If Ihey
were spirit atraanis. In the valley of
tbe Rio Uraude there are many little
rivers of this kind. Just south of Ban
tu F> la the river Houdo, which flows
broad and deep for many in lifts, than
suddenly spreads out over a sandy
plain and disappears.
A few hundred feet from where It
goes out of sight there is only sand as
dry as dust Itself. Some of these
streams end In tiny brackish lakes, but
moat of them disappear In tbe aaud
beds. On the coast of Mexico there
are clear water streams that discbarge
Into the gulf from underground chan
nels many feet below the level of the
sea, thought to be tbe earns waters
that disappear farther up lu the States.
In tlie valley between the Peoos and
tbe Rio Uraude, beginning near Bandla
mountain, I* tbe bed of an old river
with all Its tributaries, its falls. Its
•hallows and Ita fascinating bends. It
1.4 800 ml lex long and many feet wide,
but It Is only the gbost of a river, for
there Is no water there. It paases by
ths ruins of Gran Qulvlra, Its bed U
strewn with broken lava, and It ter
minates In a aalt marsh. The Indiana
have a legend that long ago the waters
were deep aud swift there until one
day a great Ore swept down the \alley,
lapping up the waters, leaving tbe bed
empty, the banks barren and the val
ley desolate forevermore.
Crater lake. Oregon, Is said to have
the greatest depth of any fresh water
lake In this country, its maximum
depth being 1,000 feet. Lake Tahoe is
possibly next in the enterprising effort
to send watar fliiwn to quench the Ores
lu the coated of the earth, for the
measuring lead shows 1,646 feet there.
Parson Brownlow and tha Democrats.
One of the famous retorta In history
occurred when Parsou Brownlow was
war governor of Tennessee. Ou one of
hia Journeys he attended service at a'
small Methodist church In the upper
part of the state. The parsou was a
devout Methodist and seldom allowed
hla political rancor to Interfere with
tha charity of bis religious faith. Ou
this occasion, being a visiting clergy
man, he was placed in the "amen cor
ner" near the pulpit. The local min
ister was aa ardently Democratic lu
his views as Governor Brownlow was
Republican. In tbe prayer which fol
lowed tho lengthy sermon the minister
began to call on tbe 1-ord for grace
for his fsvorltes. "God bless Kellx
Orundy," he begau. Parson Brownlow
moved uneasily In his seat, but re
sponded with a conscientious "Amen."
"God bless Robert E. Lee," concluded
the preacher. A fainter "Amen" from
Parson Brownlow. "God bless the
whole Democratic party," cried ths
preacher, waxing In fervor as he pro
gressed. Thla waa too much for the
governor. With t bound ha was on
hla feet, shouting:
"God forbid! It would bankrupt dl
vlhe grace and exhaust tha whola plan
Daniel Webster, Taw well and Gen

north bank of tbe Potomac, and while

the other side of the river. "Done,"
said Branch. "Well," ipld Taiewell,
pointing fo tbe opposite shore, "isn't
that ons side of the river?" "Tee."
"TSffil, isn't this tbe other side?"
"Yes." "Then, as you are hers, are

"If there la one thing more than an- i

times or hear told of circus tumblers
and clowns who in falling

"You read of an acrobat falling out
of a window, but with rare preeance
of mind, giving a sort of wriggle Just
aa the sidewalk drawa near, lauding on
the back of hla neck In precisely tbe
right way aud then bouncing to hla
feet and bowing gracefully to the star-"
"Oh, I've read of such thing* time
and time again, but, take my word, they
are all fakes pure and simple. My ex
perience has beeu that If a tumbler
loees bis balance accidentally he Is Just
aa badly off and will fall Just aa far
and Just aa hard as the man or woman
who does not even know how to turn
a eoinersault. I speak, as 1 say, from
bitter experience, aud no doubt any
other clrcua or vaudeville tumbler
would emphaslae this should you
bother to ask him.
"The explanation Is simple enough,
tf iierhsps you bave not grasped It al
ready, em body lug as It does tbe fact
that tumbling Is a science sud that
every move, however careless or slip
ahod It may appear to spectator, la
a calculated move and that any tumble
or fall proceeds In certain definite
moves from atari to finish as exact and
perfect as a problem In arithmetic.
"The act may luclte roars of laugh

be so great did tbe spectators know
how that mirth provoking stunt had
been worked over from point to point
nnd studied and practiced. Well, 1
suppose It'a like sny -other business
where the glamour la all on ths outside.
"Speaking of tumbling in real life,
you should have been with the Pore
pa ugh show one summer evening some
years back. We were doing ■ Sunday
Jump from Toiieka, I think it waa, to
some little one tent 'awn down ths
line, and tbe members of tbe troupe
were packed lu a long caboose on tbe
rear of a freight train which was
made up partly of our property cars.
"It was raining bard that night and
black as a tent rigger's heart. Tbe ca
boose wss so stifling bot that two or
three membera of our troupe would go
up In tbe caboose tower every now
and then, open tbe lookout window
and drink In the air.
"Finally the train came to a stand
still, snd there we stood for at least
ten minutes, with all sorts of rattling
and bumping going on ahead. At last
after about fifteen minutes one of thA
girls up in tbe tower called down
that there waa a fire ahead. We all
crawled up, one after the other, and
took a peep. Sure enough, there was
a big blase up forward—a railroad
atatlon, every one thought It waa, but
It turned out to lie two of our forward
"Mind you, the night wss eo blad
that you could not see three feet ahead
of your noae. The whole crowd made
a rush for tbe caboose door. Luke
Stark was the first, and Luke was ths
finest aerial tumbler In tbe country.
He bad tbe chance of bis life right
there, for aa be step|>ed off the last
step, thinking to bit the ground, he
hit nothing at all. Tbe bloomln' eu
was on a trestle.
"Well, a lady elephant tumbler wga
right behind Luke, and It was a rare

saw tbe others disappear I reached
up and caught the band rail Just aa my
feet dangled in the air. It was a mat

bat before I had my feet fair on the

Cull splash and screama of gurgling
"We got lanterns and Tan down tbe
side of the trestle, thinking to find two
dead persons, but instead we discov
ered in about a foot of water and six
feet of mud tbe two tumblers and
wedged In so tight they coold not
move, We dug them out of the mud,
hauled them back to tbe caboose, and

we asked them how they came to

The Strange Detective. I
I had married a wife and found that
[ had been mistaken lu her. Marries*
0 me had meant perfect accord. Perfect
kcconl had not been the result lu my
rase, end I resolved to cut the knot
that bound me to Delia by going away
From her. I had no Intention of leav
ing her to eupport herself. I would
live her the lion's chare of my Income
ihd supply any need for which thla
■hare waa Inadequate. It was near
midnight after a quarrel that I came
to thle decision.
Opening my front door, I want out.
It waa dark and uninviting. Here aud
there a street lamp flickered, and aa
occasional vehicle rumbled on tha
pavement. Few were abroad, and to
avoid even theee I turned dowu an
unfrequeuted street. My cheeks wera
burning, and the night air could uot
rool them. I took no thought as to
where I would so- Indeed, 1 had no
deelre to go auywbere. I wished only
to walk aud be alone.
I beard footsteps beside me and turn
ed my bead to discover who had tbua
takeu It upou himself w Intrude upon
me. I saw no one.
"Ah, I see," I inuttefel. "It'a tha
1 was walking, by a high brick wall
and attributed what 1 had beard to the
sound of my own footsteps seut bsck
from It But Wbeu 1 passed beyond It
to an opening between tbe houaes 1
still beard It. Agalu I turued to sea
If any oue waa beeidc me.
This time 1 was surprleed—lndeed,
so much surprised that my attention
was drswu momentarily from my trou
ble. 1 saw a figure the counterpart of
myself. He WHS myself lu every re
upect except that he wore a very dis
agreeable expression I stopped aud
stood still. He did the same. 1 moved
ou. He moved ou too. 1 concluded
to apeak to him.
"Where are you going?" I asked.
"Where are you going?" he replied.
"I ? I don't care where I go."
"So loug aa you get your revenge, I
"Iteveugel Revenge on whom?"
1 thought a moment. Could It be
possible that what I did waa influenced
by a desire to hurt Delia.
"My wife will uot trouble herself
nbout my leaving tier so long as sbe Is
"Belter than that, sbe won't sleep a
wink all bight. >
"Do you think so?"
"I know so. It will serve her right.
She has treated you ehainerully.'*
1 had considered that Delia bad
healed me ehaniefully, but preferred
to be the only one to accuse her. Now
tbat this disagreeable counterpart of
myself did so I revolted.
"Can you name any oue thing," I
asked, Irritated, "In which she has
treated me shamefully?"
"Yes; she married you for one thing
and found you another. This caused
her lo treat you badly In everything."
,_"Blie dlsapisduted In me? Why, It's
1 who uni disappointed.in her."
"Aud you have a right to lie. You
were looking for a woman with a dis
position that nothlug can ruflle. You
knew that you were quick s|ioken and
often unjust. You wanted Bome one
to bear with xo«. You didn't get it."
"No, I dhln't get It; you're right
there. But was I Justified In expect
ing all that?"
"You married for It. and since yon
have been disappointed you sro right
In resuming your former slatui."
"But I don't like the idea of Delia
"Yon have to expect that."
"That doesn't help the matter."
"Better go back end comfort her."
"Who are you anyway? You have
been telling me that I should bd sat
isfied with what I've got. Now you
turn about and tell me to go and com
"U wouldn't do any good for me to
tell you who I am. You wouldn't rec
ognize me any better for the telling.
But, If you wish to know, I'm your coiu
"Now I know you're lying. Con
science doesn't go about telling people
who have done wrong that they've
done right. It telle tbein tbat they've
done wrong from first to last."
My other self chuckled. "Con
science," he said, "Isn't always like
that. Conscience uses all sorts of
means to right people. Often he Is a
detective, hunting for a clew whereby
we are to lie convinced of our wrong
doing. In these caeee bo plays parts,
wears disguises. Just like a real de
tective. If he went at a wrongdoer
fair and square, be would accomplish

"Stop making a fool of yoorself."-
"Go home.' You'll find your wife in
tears. Jell her you're sorry and ail

"You won't care wbetber she does,
or not." -
I turned nnd began to walk borne
slowly. I forgot all about my other
eelf and neither lieard nor saw any
thing more of him. As I proceeded I
went faster till I ran. When I got
to tbe bouse. I went up tbe etairiitttfla
at a time. Delia was lying on a tfnnge,
her face burled in tbe cushions./ I was
sure I bsd killed her.
"Sweetheart." I said, "forgive me."
I put my arms about her, and she
answered with a sob.
